THINK THUNK | Drawing + Music Animation

The drawing program that I use automatically records my strokes and spits out a time-lapse video at the end. My composer friend asked me to do a drawing set to one of his songs. So I came up with different line styles and onomatopoeic words to represent the different movements in the song, and roughly timed out my blocks of drawing activity so that we'd be able to (somewhat) sync up the resulting video with the music. More of my drawings here. More of my friend's music here.

Our MetaFilter Quilting Bee is up and running. This blog is where we'll display our plans for each quilt, blocks as they're finished, and (eventually!) the finished quilts.

The 24 Hour Novel Project

Dream of writing a novel but can’t find time to write? How about setting aside just 1 day? I gathered a team of authors to compose a novel collaboratively in a day (May 28th) and you can watch via the web as every word is composed in real-time. The cover art will be created that day too, which you can observe via live video stream. The collaboration culminates in a free Creative Commons licensed e-book available for download the following day. Wish us luck. We'll need it.

Dead Advice: A Guide to Living (From the Dead)

The premise of this site is that you have recently died, and now you're penning a letter to the rest of the world. The subject matter is open, and can be whatever you'd like: a list of things you found important, a series of regrets, or an open letter to the young. There is only one requirement. Every letter submitted to the site must begin with the same first sentence: "Now that I'm dead, I want to tell you a few things." [more inside]

Fictopedia - The Fictional Encyclopedia

Fictopedia is an online encyclopedia (in wiki form) of user-generated fictional information. Users are free to add or edit any information they wish on any subject with only two limitations. First, the information must be fictional (we already have Wikipedia for the "real' world) and second, the information must be about original, and not existing fictions (so nothing copyrighted/in someone else's book/movie/show already). Fictopedia is about creating new fictions by letting users add, edit and cross-link each others' ideas. There is no limit on genre (sci fi, alt-history, present day fiction, fantasy, whatever!) and articles can range from serious to silly. The goal is to see what emerges. Think of it as a fan wiki for all the fictional universes that don't exist yet. I've been working on this with several friends for a while, but I want to throw it open to as many people as possible now. Come create an account and contribute - see where others take your ideas!
